Scott Walker is Against Racism (sometimes)!

By Jeff Simpson

Recently, Capper broke the story of how Scott Walker wanted the people of Wisconsin to send him the money they had planned on spending on their children during Black Friday shopping.   Captain ego approved the fundraising email, because really who in the Walker world would not want to send their extra money to further Scott Walker's career?  (Well except for Taylor Palmisano who wrote the email, she WANTS your gifts.  Do not send money intended for her to Scott Walker please, take it to Macy's and buy her stuff) 

Well thanks to Capper, the true depth of Scott Walker's ego, and self centeredness went global.   Scott of course can not have any of that so he threw his favorite intern under the bus.   Palmisano had some 3 year old racist tweets on her profile and Scott Walker was not going to have that in his campaign. 

"Taylor Palmisano has been immediately removed from her position with the Friends of Scott Walker campaign," said spokesman Jonathan Wetzel. "Both the Governor, and the campaign, condemn these insulting remarks which do not reflect our views in any way."
 Scott Walker condemns remarks made three years ago, he is so against racism that he is going to veto the Steve nASS Racist Mascot Protection Bill, to remain consistent. 

O wait:

"If it were me, personally, I'd find a way to move away from nicknames or mascots that certain groups of our fellow citizens seriously found to be offensive," Walker said during an interview Tuesday at the governor's mansion along Lake Mendota.
Walker's fellow Republicans passed a bill this fall that would make it much harder for the state to order schools to change race-based team names and mascots.
Walker has until Thursday to sign or veto the measure; if he does nothing, it will automatically become law then. Walker said he would not allow the measure to go into law on its own, saying he would approve or reject it by the deadline.
He said he empathized with those who are offended by Indian team names, but cast the ability of schools to choose their team names as a First Amendment right.
"I get the concern" of opponents, Walker said. "But the counterbalance to that that I'm looking at is, by the same token, from a free speech standpoint...where do you draw the line on free speech?"
"While I may not like or necessarily approve of others' speech, where do you draw the line to say, 'It's OK to do things that you like but not that you don't?'" he said.

Apparently he used up his offense at insulting remarks, and has no intention on remaining consistent.   Besides, we all know exactly how he feels about "free speech"

Now that Scott Walker is running for President(stop laughing), he is trying to have it both ways.  He does not think we should use racist mascots but he will sign a bill making it impossible to change them.   Everyone wins!  

It is NOT too late though 

Contact Scott Walker and tell him to veto the Racist Mascot Preservation Bill

  1. Hey, Jeff, the Democratic Party of WI is dropping its lie that Scott Walker was kicked out of Marquette. Your turn?

    1. LOL, you must have a handful of straws by now.

      Walker's lies outweigh any semblance of truthful statements about 3-1 at politifact.

      And you seem to be on a continuing, but fruitless search for political relevance with this "news."

  2. Walker Hypocrite. Oh wait, we knew that.

    Bill is Signed this afternoon.

    From the article: "A person or persons’ right to speak does not end just because what they say or how they say it is offensive."
